Shareholders are referred to the announcement released on Thursday, 6 May 2010
and are advised that the Nigerian Securities and Exchange Commission has
registered the issue of bonus shares at the rate of one ordinary share of fifty
kobo for every two ordinary shares of fifty kobo each held for the twelve months
to 31 December 2009 ("bonus issue"). The bonus issue was approved by the
Company`s shareholders at the annual general meeting held on Friday, 7 May 2010.
It is expected that admission to trading and listing of the bonus issue shares
will take place on the Main Board of JSE Limited on Monday, 16 August 2010.
Registered holders of Oando ordinary shares as recorded on the Company`s share
register on Thursday 20 May 2010 ("qualifying shareholders") will have their
accounts with Central Securities Depository Participants and brokers in South
Africa credited with bonus shares on or about 16 August 2010. New share
certificates in respect of the bonus issue will be posted to qualifying
shareholders on the same day.
Qualifying shareholders will not be allocated a fraction of a bonus share and as
such any bonus share giving rise to a fraction of less than one of a bonus share
will be rounded down to the nearest whole number. This is applicable to
shareholders on both the Nigerian and South African share register.
